I worked at University of California Berkeley

Pros

Great work life balance and benefits. Work life balance was achievable because staff had very few expectations placed on them.

Cons

Leadership was autocratic. There was a false sense of collaboration, but decisions were made before anyone discussed them.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Get some leadership training and and be real.

    Current Employee - Health Worker in Berkeley, CA

    I have been working at University of California Berkeley

    Pros

    Good hours, most Health Workers are undergrad students, you really feel like you're making a difference after every day of work.

    Cons

    Not very entertaining, training is not sufficient to do any meaningful health-care work, Health Workers don't really have any ability to help residents. Job is more of a health promotion job rather than a public health job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give the health worker program the means to REALLy train its members. We could do so much more than what we're doing right now. Maybe the job title should be changed to "Health Promoter"
